NATIONAL PARK SERVICE

"My life on the farm during the Great Depression more nearly resembled farm life of fully 2,000 years ago than farm life today.

I have reflected on it often since that time; social eras change at their own curious pace, depending on geography and technology and a host of other factors. It is incredible with what speed those changes have totally transformed both the farming methods and a life-style I knew in my boyhood."

Jimmy Carter, 1975
